Are 'how big are your breasts?' and 'how big is your cock?' contextually the same question?

Are the normal answers given comparable? Why is a rather specific answer expected for the former, but not the latter?

Time for a little social mores research.

Well, I was asked last evening and it got me thinking. My immediate response, which made it past all the safety filters (damnit!), was a serious eyebrow and 'Got a ruler?'.

So, why are these two things viewed / responded to differently? Why should it matter anyways?

Which brings up something else to think about - I get more than annoyed by living forever in the big sister/little sister/friend only box, but on the other hand I also get annoyed by being classed as nothing more than a 'fun playtoy' based on superficial characteristics.

Yeah, I'm totally screwed. Or not, actually.

hmmmm. interesting. i've been wondering how, or at all
to answer the question. i've never been asked, and i've
never asked. if asked, my answer would probably be rather
sarcastic, and if i asked, i can't imagine not getting such
an answer. the only context i *might* ask if i were buying
or making clothes for someone, and needed fitting information.

silly people.

hmmm. sample answers for fun...

"bigger than you [r ego] can handle"
"if you need to ask, you don't need to know"
"if you can't tell now, what good are you?"
"did you want that in meters per second or volume?"
"metric or english?"
"why, i never!"
"ask your mom/dad!"
"you didn't just ask me that, you better not have"
"keeel! jumping up and down on the desk keel! KEEL!"

uhm. sorry :>
